Feeney, Redding to attend NFL Scouting Combine

Guard Dan Feeney and running back Devine Redding will attend this year’s NFL Scouting Combine, the league announced Wednesday.

The former Hoosiers are two of the 330 players who will work out for team executives at Lucas Oil Stadium from Feb. 28 through March 6. Feeney, a two-time All-American, is a potential first round pick. Indiana hasn’t had a player drafted in the opening round since the New York Giants selected receiver Thomas Lewis with the No. 24 overall pick in 1994.

Redding is one of 33 running backs/fullbacks invited to the league’s annual scouting event. He declared for the draft following a junior season that saw him rush for 1,000 yards for the second consecutive year.

  1. It is nice to see those two going to combine but I have wonder why Green wasn’t invited with the season he had. I also wish Oliver would have waited another year. Good luck to all the Hoosier working out to go in the NFL.

  2. Unfortunately for Oliver, he’s coming out in a year that is rich with linebackers. He’ll probably get drafted in the later rounds, or like a lot of gifted football players, sign a free agent contract.

    Feeney’s concussion issues this season will probably cost him a first round draft pick. I see him going in round three or later.

    Since Howard went in round five to Chicago, Redding may not get drafted at all. But it’s hard to say because Redding did not have the benefit of a good QB and/or a healthy O-line in 2016. His individual workouts may impress the scouts and GMs. He was certainly a great workhorse over the past two seasons. I hope he makes it. I hope they all do.

  3. I had the same thoughts about Feeney too but with his performance in the all-star game being called the best OL player there he might not drop. It is hard to tell with the NFL draft due to teams drafting based on team needs or teams drafting on best player available.

    I don’t see Redding being drafted but you never know what can happen if he lights it up in the Combine.

    The more Hoosiers making it in the league will help out recruiting.
